The Sierra Club of B.C. has proudly announced a new eco partnership with Whitehall Rowing and Sail, North America's finest manufacturer of efficient, durable, environmentally friendly rowing boats.

As long-time "boaters" and lovers of nature, Marie Hutchinson and Harold Aune, owners of Whitehall Rowing & Sail based in Victoria, have been looking for ways to give back to their community and nature.

Are you wondering how to help keep the earth's wild places pristine? Do you love the incredible variety of lakes, rivers and mystical ocean environments we are so lucky to have? Do you want to see them protected and cared for?

"We're a small busy company that has always believed in the proven health benefits people get from rowing and the clean foot print a human-powered craft leaves. We see the Sierra Club doing a good job of protecting the environment and educating the public and we want to help them," said Marie, who is also President of the company. "When Sierra Club members purchase our products, whether boats, accessories or how-to-row DVD's our corporate sponsorship will include a 1.5% donation to the BC chapter."

One of the many supporters of Whitehall Rowing and Sail is Adam Kreek, a gold winner Olympic rower who is featured on one of the company DVDs giving detailed rowing lessons. This DVD is also available to watch free online.

Whitehall Rowing and Sail invites you to join them in their water-loving "Quiet Revolution". It's a call to connect with nature, life and real values by purchasing locally made, top quality products that cause no noise, air or water pollution; they do not endanger delicate ecosystems and simultaneously build healthier bodies while reducing stress. Rowing and sailing these beautiful small craft is a totally green activity that will introduce you to your local marine areas and their inhabitants like nothing else.
